Choose ripe pears that are firm.
You can use maple syrup or agave in place of brown sugar or honey (for vegetarians).
You can use some chilli flakes on top for a slight hint of heat.
Even a pinch of sea salt mixed in the brown sugar tastes well.
You can’t store these pears for long as they are best consumed fresh. Refrigerate the leftovers and consume within a day.
If you are feeling indulgent, you could pour some butter over the pears after they are cooked for a buttery flavour. Vegan butter can be used too.
